Prof in a box

Posted by unicefadmin in Uncategorized

 

Hey everyone! Ready to start putting some hours into your Co-Curricular Transcript? Well we have our first event coming up very soon!

We’re planning on holding an event to collect donations from your fellow students for National UNICEF Day, on October 31st!!

How the Event will work:

1. October 14th : Volunteers put down their available times for an info session to get them orientated for the event. If absolutely none of the times for the info session work for you, please let us know and we can talk with you at another time. Sign up link is: http://www.doodle.com/tbrivwwrdv6s93fw

2. During the info session volunteers will then be given a template for approaching the professor and a letter for the professor which they will present to their professor of choice, asking them if they wish to participate.

3. October 17th – 21st: Approach/Contact professor

4. October 24th – 28th: During the week after the information session, volunteers will “market” the event by asking students to participate by donating $1 (or any amount) on October 31.

5. October 31st: Volunteers will sign out a human sized counter box, bring it to class, enjoy a lecture being taught by their counter boxed professor, feel satisfied that they have contributed to a great campaign and return the box after the lecture to the PM.

The info session will also count as 1 hour towards your CCR, so be sure to attend!!! As well, depending on the length of your class(es) you will receive matching volunteer hours and an additional hour for preparation of the event!!!

Volunteers can approach this event solo or in groups of 2-3 (must be UNICEF on Campus members). Volunteers will be asked to approach a professor and ask if they are interested to support the National UNICEF Day campaign by teaching their October 31st lecture in a UNICEF human size counter box, IF all the students (most, or over 50%) donate a $1. Should the professor agree to participate, the volunteer will then market the event to their class mates during their lectures prior to October 31st and on the class prior to October 31st volunteers will collect the donations. For example, if a volunteer has a Monday (24th), Wednesday (26th), Friday (28th) class they will collect the donations on the Friday (28th). On October 31st volunteers will sign out a human sized counter box, bring it to class, enjoy a lecture being taught by their counter boxed professor, feel satisfied that they have contributed to a great campaign and return the box after the lecture. If you need help approaching your professor, we are here to help.

*One professor/volunteer (or volunteer group) is subject to change depending on how many volunteers sign up, because we have a limited number of human sized counter boxes.
